As I sit at my computer this morning the lightening is flashing, the thunder is rolling, and rain is falling. We received the blessing Saturday evening too; and received about one inch of the blessing. During a rain break, I went and checked my bucket and there was another inch plus a quarter in the bucket.
Saturday July 20 made 5 weeks since we had received any significant rainfall. Now the drought has been broken.
Now the rain is continuing. There is only One who is worthy of thanks, and that is our Creator; our Maker; our Savior, and our friend. Thank YOU Lord.
I have already written of the rain which came yesterday. It was a real blessing, and we received an inch of blessings from heaven.
An hour or so after the rain had stopped I told my wife, Madge, that I was going to go speak to the buckets and find out how much rain we had received. I returned into the house and told her I had spoken with the buckets, and they had told me “It rained about an inch”.
You see, I had several buckets, out in the backyard. Some small, maybe less than a gallon, some medium size, about two gallons or so; and a couple of five gallon buckets. I had left all of them up where they would catch water. I had not really done it on purpose, but it had been done.
When I stuck my forefinger in the buckets, each of them told me the same thing. The water in each of the buckets came up to my first knuckle; and that is an inch. Buckets do speak if we will listen.
Having fun living on the banks of Flat Creek.
